On the other hand, it wouldn't be the first time something Rich reported was roundly denied before ending up being true. 

The thing is even Rich himself didn't really come across as believing it. I think he just as confused by the current rumors people deliver him.

I'm more interested in Rucka on Lois.

He wrote her well years ago.

Interested in the Fraction book.  High hopes for the Rucka book.  No idea how either of those titles can tap into a larger audience and survive, though.

Well, Didio announced they are cutting the line down 10-15% but specifically denied the 22 number. Also talked about the market being oversaturated and if seems it was taken as a shot at Marvel publishing 8 billion monthly books.

Says the guy who publishes all his flagship books twice a month and still charges full price for them. 😡

How many books do they normally publish a month (not counting imprints and licensed titles)?   I don't pay that much attention but I thought that DC published 50 or so main DCU books per month.  I'm basing that on a vague recollection that the NEW 52 launched with 52 titles.

In any case, it seems like they'd have to cut the line by much more than 10-15% to get the line down to 22 titles.

I can't imagine "The New 22" being very interesting to me, if it ever comes to that.

That is about what I figured would happen. The 22 number always seemed like bs to me though them cutting books down seemed believable. They aren't really wrong about Marvel over-saturating the market and that comes from someone who reads more Marvel than DC right now. Shit I was super excited about War of the Realms until a dozen or so minis were advertised. Still looking forward to Aaron's specific books, but that was definitely a turn off.
